I had a bad Ewing flashback there.

Finish this!
The Knicks used 23.99 seconds of that 24 second shot clock

First time I've been pumped about the Knicks since 2013 - this is way better because a young superstar is at the heart of it all.
Great defense to force the turnover!!!  
dpinzow : 11/7/2017 9:54 pm : link
Will be reviewed but I think it went off Kemba
Monk's shooting finally came down to earth this quarter  
JoeMoney19 : 11/7/2017 9:54 pm : link
another great game for the Knicks.
Keep smiling

Dwight Howard
Once again a come from behind win.

This team continues to surprise!
I really assumed  
JoeMoney19 : 11/7/2017 9:57 pm : link
4th quarter defense would be why the Knicks would LOSE many close games this season. This has been a pleasant total surprise.
Sweet victory!  
bceagle05 : 11/7/2017 9:58 pm : link
Monk's big "statement game" sure fizzled out. Enjoy anonymity in Charlotte, Malik! And Dwight is still a clown.
29 assists  
xman : 11/7/2017 9:58 pm : link
nice
Didn't think they had the energy to pull this one out.  
bceagle05 : 11/7/2017 9:59 pm : link
A lot of character with this group.
Nice win!  
Sean : 11/7/2017 9:59 pm : link
6-4
This is crazy!!!

2013 team was way unlikable to me. This is the most excited Iíve been since 2004 when they finally ended their playoff drought.
Love that Jeff has trusted Frank

in the fourth quarter both of these last two comeback wins. So good to see!

business winning this game. They continue to surprise for and expected lottery team. KP is not only excelling at the game but his confidence and leadership is a breath of fresh are. This team is growing before our eyes.
they still incur the first quarter deficits but  
Del Shofner : 11/7/2017 10:04 pm : link
they are reliable in fighting back late ...
Another great win!  
mfsd : 11/7/2017 10:04 pm : link
Several of our astute posters here predicted Charlotte would give us trouble on the boards...their guards would be tough to contain...Howard would be a handful...and all proved true

And yet, the Knicks had the chops to tighten up on defense in the 4th, shoot their way back into the game, and put them away, despite a couple weak possessions late.

Nkitilinaís 4th Q on offense was a mixed bag, but he brought his A game on defense again.

Great job by KP to overcome Howard essentially playing football against him down the stretch, and step out to drill the dagger 3 to put us ahead

4-1 homestand against some good teams...time to see if they can pull out games like this on the road
Hope we see a lot of Willy and Dotson tomorrow.  
bceagle05 : 11/7/2017 10:05 pm : link
There'll be some tired legs in Orlando.

In retrospect, maybe - but that season was fun while it was going on. It was an old team so there wasn't the "hope for the future" aspect, but there were some really good games that year.

We were hinging on too many old guys like Kidd, Wallace, KMart, Camby, etc, but that team won more games than any other Knick team had since 1997. It was enjoyable at the time.

This is much better because of Porzingis and the way the team is playing in general. No more watching Melo spend half the game playing iso ball.
Why do the refs  
moespree : 11/7/2017 10:07 pm : link
Allow Dwight Howard to get away with what he does? The guy isn't even liked by anyone in the league and plays like this every game no matter the opponent. He doesn't actually play defense or box out. He just throws people out of the way. Plus I'm willing to bet he throws at least 4 or 5 cheap shots a game into your lower back.
Has KP missed a shot in crunch time this year yet?  
Tesla : 11/7/2017 10:07 pm : link
On top of everything else he's so damn clutch! And his 4th quarter defense has been ridiculous the last two nights....guys don't even think about shooting when they get close to the rim.
Kp is a stud  
DennyInDenville : 11/7/2017 10:08 pm : link
Frank is the real deal..

Very exciting
Another worthy effort from Lance Thomas too

McDermott
Lance Thomas
KOQ

You have Noah on this team since Game 1  
LawrenceTaylor56 : 11/7/2017 10:40 pm : link
this team isn't 6-4 right now, in my opinion.

I think he's gonna be the most hated man on this team within a few days.
Lance in small doses is fine.  
bceagle05 : 11/7/2017 10:40 pm : link
These past couple of years he's been our sixth man, which is ludicrous.
Saw this on RealGM and had to share...

I kinda believe in Jeff. I donít think he will let Noah wreck the chem. I think heíll give Noah a leash and time. But not unlimited in either regard.
If Noah plays like he did last year he really has little role  
yatqb : 11/7/2017 11:27 pm : link
on this team. He couldn't play defense last year, and his offensive game is horrendous. He can pass out of the post, but I don't think that is enough for him to deserve to take minutes away from Kanter or KOQ.

And on one third-quarter possession, KP had what appeared to be a open look at a 3 from the top. But he dished into the left corner to a MORE open Lee. Now, Lee missed the open 3. But right there was a indicator.

KP has learned plenty, including NOT to emulate Meloís ďmeĒ game.

@IanBegley
Knicks have won back-to-back games when down by double digits entering 4th Q for first time in the shot-clock era (since 1954-55), per Elias
Speaking of Melo  
LawrenceTaylor56 : 11/8/2017 12:27 am : link
the Star-Studded Thunder just dropped tonights game to the 1-8 Kings. They now fall to 4-6.
Another great finish for the Knicks.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 11/8/2017 12:30 am : link
On KP's lay-up at the end, I screamed "SHOOT IT!!!!!" with 3 seconds left on the shot clock. How he got that all the way to the rim in that small amount of time is unbelievable. Big night for McBuckets. Gotta give Horny credit for the small lineup since that was the only way they could defend the Hornets. In the first half, the Knicks looked like they'd never seen a pick and roll before. They were getting eaten alive, but they hung in there. It showed a lot of toughness to bounce back at 109-100.

Interesting to see Beasley out of the rotation.
Knicks have to find a way  
LawrenceTaylor56 : 11/8/2017 12:33 am : link
to stop letting teams get so many uncontested 3's. It seems like they are crashing the lanes hard to provide help to Kanter/KP, allowing that extra swing pass to an open 3
Anthony shot 4 for 17 tonight  
arniefez : 11/8/2017 12:44 am : link
and was -21. Phil Jackson had no business running an NBA team and devalued an asset but everything he said about Anthony was true.

I don't disagree with you, but I think a little of it is designed. They were letting Lance Stevenson have open looks the other night because he's known-terrible from 3.
Can someone explain to me

How Haywoode Workman is allowed to ref Knicks games? He is consistently ridiculous and borderline corrupt. It's despicable.
Bizarro world -

Knicks lose that game 10/10 times the past several years.

Nice to see Kemba lose that game at the garden.

A lot of missed assignments on defense. Must improve.

Frank with two missed 3's and a charge in crunch time almost cost the Knick's the game.

Still, he's taking those shots and he made a huge 3 the previous game. He's a college freshman gaining confidence playing in New York City running point for a team down 11 heading into the fourth. I really can't crap on anything about the Frank situation last night - even the misses and the charge. (It was a really good defensive play.)
Really very happy with the way Jeff is working things.  
Beezer : 11/8/2017 8:11 am : link
I think we are now seeing how he can coach. Sad that he really MAY have been completely handcuffed last season, although that's absolutely not the only factor.

Wouldn't say I'm worried, but a little nervous and very interested to see how things evolve once Noah returns. This next week should be intriguing.
Kyle O'Quinn and Lance Thomas are players  
Ira : 11/8/2017 8:11 am : link
that no one expected to contribute at this level. I think Jeff and his coaching staff are bringing the best out of their players.
The thing about Frank  
Dave on the UWS : 11/8/2017 8:39 am : link
is he DOES bring his "A" defense game every night. THATS what will make him special. His offense is secondary and will be a work in progress.
KOQ and Thomas  
Dave on the UWS : 11/8/2017 8:41 am : link
are best in small doses as rotation players. Ask too much of them (last couple of years) and their warts show big time.
trade Noah right now for a bag of balls ...  
Csonka : 11/8/2017 2:21 pm : link
before he messes this up.
There hasn't been this much excitement in the Garden since
